I don't know, but I think I think in most states it is illegal to rip this many unborn babies from the womb.

This CD will herald a new era of technical death metal, and maybe it can show the folks in Origin and Necrophagist to actually write songs.

Extremis Invictus 06-23-2006 02:13 AM

Ya, I got mine too, best Death Metal of 2006.

EVE OF CONTEMPT is THE song.

Thank you Spawn for upping the bar again.

Heh, shut up, Necrophagist owns.

DeadInMagazines 06-23-2006 11:23 AM

I have everything Necrophagist has released, I enjoy listening to them from time to time. I do beleive that they are too much fast too much of the time. They have some really amazing ass songs, Stabwound, Only Ash Remains, Seven, To breath In a Casket, Intestinal Incubation. It's just that it seems like writing something with syncopation has never cross their minds which hurts them alot, even though they are already a good band and pretty damn good musicians.


Same thing goes with Origin. That's why I like Beneath The Massacre, they take all the insane gravity blasting, technical guitar tapping/sweeping/squeelies riffing at insane speeds but actually carve out room for rhythm periodically in their songs.



That's not even the point, the new SoP is amazing as shit, the guitars are so intricate at times, it shows a real skill of writing that few bands show at all. Straight foward and bludgeoning at some parts, monolithic grooves at others, spuratic choas at others, but this murders Catholic priests the whole way through.

The intro and outro compositions are beautiful too.






I can't get over how good this fucking cd.

PoisontheWell 06-24-2006 12:57 AM

wow...i really want to hear this :(

Dago 06-24-2006 08:13 AM

damn it is really great. it's different and totally amazing

Cloaca 06-24-2006 10:32 AM

Fuck all you cunts that have heard Noctambulant already.

durrrral 06-24-2006 07:56 PM

indeed fuck all you that have it allready. i pre-ordered my shit also

InvoluntarySlaughter 06-24-2006 10:10 PM

God, I just want this to arrive already!!!!!!!

FUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Inquest 06-25-2006 12:43 AM

Freaking terrific album. Its so intense and tight. And as for comparing it to Necrophagist, it may be "better" in some aspects but I see them as two different bands that slay me in different ways.

If you download this album Spawn themselves will kill you in your sleep Freddy style.If you pre ordered it couldnt wait and downloaded it then you fail at life and Sop will still kill you.

Suicide Machine 06-25-2006 03:56 PM

I pre ordered and am resisting the temptation to download it. must... hold... on.... God damn it, I'm hurting for this album. Make it arrive!

xdevilbunny 06-25-2006 09:48 PM

I pre-ordered it as well, and it hasn't gotten here. I couldn't stand hearing my buddies who don't pay for shit rave about it, so yeah, I downloaded it and it fucking rocks. I figure I paid for it already, why not download it? :/

Anyway, this album is THE BEST RELEASE of 2006. I've listened to it about 7 times already in 1 day, it's so good. Great job guys, you've outdone Cabinet!

Illapse 06-26-2006 03:43 AM

Holy bin laden , i think i just came 4 times. This is fucking spastically yummy goodness. Made my day:)

Lichtbringer 06-26-2006 10:28 AM

It's a bad way to start off a day finding no pre-order-package in your letter box.

Dago 06-26-2006 01:50 PM

With this album SoP has topped necrophagist.

xdevilbunny 06-26-2006 06:12 PM

Cabinet was miles ahead of anything Necrophagist has done anyway.

Spawn of Possession has topped Anata as my #2 death metal band with this album though :)

That's a very homosexual thing to say.

But Noctambulant is probably one of the best products that Death metal has gotten for couple of years.
It's something that hasn't been done before.
It's pure awesomeness, GREAT album. I love it.

DeadInMagazines 06-26-2006 11:21 PM

Homosexual? I didn't say that they were bad bands are they even wrote bad songs. I'm sorry I am not a total death metal head like yourself, listening to bands like Disavowed that all sound the same.

But you know, that's not my opinion or anything, let's make stabs at my sexual ity.

Bored 666 06-26-2006 11:41 PM

The new album is great, but I know it's going to take me a number of weeks to completely absorb it. I'm looking forward to it. I listen to it once a day.

Mister_Willy 06-27-2006 01:24 AM

what!!?? everybodys got it man!!

Album; come to canada now, mother fucker!!!!

sweetXmajestic 06-27-2006 03:47 PM

I just got mine on Monday finally and yes, pre-ordered it ages ago. I figured it would take 4-6 weeks from when the Neurotic site said they were shipping them, and it took about 4. I had been checking my mailbox daily waiting for that cd. I got my Deathchain "Deathrash Assault" cd on the same day so my week is now complete (musicaly anyways).

As for the cd, it's bad ass. The songs are a lot to take in all in jsut one spin because there really is a lot going on...but did you expect anything less coming out of SOP? I didn't think so. Yes, the guitar is technical, but the songs aren't written so complex that you get lost in them. SOP have a way of finding a perspective medium between those two qualities. Man the fucking riffage on this cd, it's massive. That "jazz like" outro on Sour flow threw me for a surprise, but the name fits that song fully. I like how the individual drums stick out a bit more on this cd, but the bass isn't as prominant as it was on the previous release, I actually turned my bass up a bit more then I normally would.

And I agree wtih Inquest up there when he/she says that both bands slay me in different ways. Necrophagist lean a little more on the melodic/progressive side. Sure they are still brutal as hell, but obviously both bands have many differences. I really enjoy Necrophagist because they found the perfect blend of technicality and melody. They're high on my favorite band list. As for SOP topping Necrophagist? I think it's actually all in musical taste, it's all in the qualities you look for in a band. We could argue about that for weeks. I like Necrophagist because I think they DO have the songwriting skills and are still technical as hell. The riffage is speedy and noodley but there's still an underlying balance that makes them not seem too chaotic where it is just noise to my ears. SOP have that same quality but go about it in a more brutal way.

I agree 100%....I just think necro has the full package as far as all the members really standing out, really its just the bass missing from SOP IMO.

mikeb 06-27-2006 05:56 PM

i want this cd
i feel bad for not pre-ordering

xdevilbunny 06-27-2006 11:30 PM

The reason Spawn of Possession is better than Necrophagist is simple. They aren't technical to the point of annoying wankery(see: Necrophagist). They can be amazingly technical and brutal at the same time, without going into annoying "deedley-doodley" solo's all the time.

If I wanted to hear technical wankery, i'd be listening to Dream Theater ;)

Illapse 06-28-2006 12:31 AM

Amen to that :) Sop is the most under-rated band ever. I got bored of necrophagist long ago.

This term technical wankery is getting old.

how is the bass "missing" from SoP... Dewerud is an excellent bassist and his playing and tone on both albums is head and shoulders above many others

AnthonyB 06-28-2006 12:49 PM

he plays bass. he makes the songs lower and heavier and grimier. and he's damn good at it. people think bassists need to have generic tap parts and other cliched shit in their playing before they qualify as good musicians. bs

ChAAPY 06-28-2006 02:52 PM

so after listening to this several time I've to this conclusion. "Cabinet" has the better songs, no question about that for me. It was the first time ever hearing them and it will always be a favorite of mine. The songs are a bit more catchy on "Cabinet" but the new one.... my god the new rips. The musicianship is excellent, some of the best ever in death metal... EVER!!! I'm so glad this wasn't a "Cabinet II" also. The progessive inlfuences really stand out more on this album too. Definetly giving it variety and every song has it's own identity which is another plus. Excellent riffs, very tastefully drumming, and some very awesome vocals. "Noctambulant" is by far the best death metal CD to come out this year so far. AMAZING ALBUM!!!

[qliphoth / daemons] 06-29-2006 10:58 AM

"Noctambulant" is incredible. I've listened to it at least 5 times and it will seriously tear you a new asshole...

"Render my Prey" would definitely be a highlight for me.

My only problem with it is that I think (and remember kiddies, this is just my OPINION) the production on "Cabinet" was much better. The guitar tone on "Noctambulant" is a little bit cloudier, whereas "Cabinet" had a really crisp, clear sound.

But don't get me wrong...This is NOT something that detracts from the overall sound or musicianship of the album at all. It's just a 'different' sound. In fact, the more I listen to it, the more I warm to the overall sound. So one thing I would suggest NOT doing is comparing them side by side. If you listen to "Noctambulant" with fresh ears, you will appreciate it that little bit more.

But "Noctambulant" is definitely poised to become a new favourite of mine...

So yeah...the album itself is amazing and congrats go out to SOP for showing everyone just how it's done...AGAIN.

Yes, he is, and he does what he needs to do in the band to fully inject what the bass is supposed to be there for. The bassist is just what you said, but sometimes people like more from a bassist. Bass can be handled in many ways, I'm sure you obviously know that. For me it depends on the music. On SOP meterial, I don't exactly think there is room for the bassist to do more then he does. But in some bands, such as Spiral Architect, Athiest, Iron Maiden, Alarum, Necrophsgist, etc. etc. I actually like that the bass adds extra intricate parts to the song. It's not there just to hold up the lower end, it actually makes itself an extra part of the song. So for me I guess it just depends on the band and the music being played around it. I recently heard Quo Vadis "Defiant Imagination", and I think there's an example of somewhere the bass is too prominent and I actually thought it was a bit much for the music being played around it. I don't think that bassists who don't do "more then their part" suck, I just like some bands where the bass player is an intricate whack.

i definitely agree with your post and do appreciate it when bassists spice it up and make it more interesting.

But there is definitely a fine line between 'interesting' and 'wanky.' I would agree that in Spiral Architect, Athiest, Iron Maiden, Alarum, Necrophagist and many others the bass is more prominent sometimes but still holds down the groove. I think probably my all time favorite example of this would be either Death's ITP or the Control Denied album.

as you said, I think the intricacy of the SoP songs and the tightness of the arrangements makes it more difficult for Dewerud to do alot of noodling little fills, etc.

Thats just my opinion on the matter i enjoy bands with more of a bass presences then what Sop has "Not that i dont enjoy Sop".I really enjoy it when everyone in the band plays a big role in the sound in that sense i prefer necrophagist.I really would love to hear some bass on a Sop album like on the new Anata its great playing but it's not generic tapping as you call it "which i happen to enjoy" but i agree that tapping and all that may not fit well with Sop.But i have not gotten my pre order yet so it may be full of some great bass lines.
